Question. Can an out of state licensed California Class "B" contractor, self perform Class "C7" and Class "C28" work in California? Wondering if the Class B covers these other classifications.

thx:rolleyes:

You have to pull 3 different permits to be able to do your own sub work. For example framing, electrical and plumbing. You can't do any plumbing above $500 by itself though.

thx for the reply. the job is several million dollars. Scope of work is adding detention security doors, electric locks, intercom devices, camera, microwave security perimeter and a complete replacement of the existing electronic control system in a prison. I was under the impression that because he had a C28 lic and a Class B lic, he could do most of the work except for the C7 work. Just wondering how we took months getting a C7 lic and our competitor only has a B lic and is allowed to perform the same work. When someone applies and takes that test to obtain a Class B lic, do they get questions on the test pertaining to the C7 field as well?

thx

(b) A general building contractor may take a prime contract or a subcontract for a framing or carpentry project. However, a general building contractor shall not take a prime contract for any project involving trades other than framing or carpentry unless the prime contract requires at least two unrelated building trades or crafts other than framing or carpentry, or unless the general building contractor holds the appropriate license classification or subcontracts with an appropriately licensed specialty contractor to perform the work. A general building contractor shall not take a subcontract involving trades other than framing or carpentry, unless the subcontract requires at least two unrelated trades or crafts other than framing or carpentry, or unless the general building contractor holds the appropriate license classification. The general building contractor may not count framing or carpentry in calculating the two unrelated trades necessary in order for the general building contractor to be able to take a prime contract or subcontract for a project involving other trades.
